How Milan’s starting lineup will be on Sunday night against Napoli

AC Milan will have to shift focus from the Champions League to the league as they will take on Napoli this Sunday. For the Rossoneri, this is a big game, and some of the starting lineup decisions are known already.

Stefano Pioli and his men will need to bounce back with a win after two defeats, but the injury situation is still not ideal. Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Noah Okafor could be back for this one, though, which would be a huge boost.

Davide Calabria, who came off the bench against PSG, should start in defense, with Theo Hernandez on the other side. The heart of the department, however, is a bit up in the air as Fikayo Tomori might need some rest. Simon Kjaer appears to be in line for a starting spot, especially since Malik Thiaw is suspended.

Further up the pitch, a lot will depend on the condition of Loftus-Cheek. His return would likely put Yunus Musah on the bench, with Tijjani Reijnders and Rade Krunic/Yacine Adli completing the department.

Finally, Noah Okafor should be back for this game after struggling with some fatigue and is set to replace Olivier Giroud. Since Luka Jovic had to skip yesterday’s warm-up due to muscle fatigue, his health will need to be closely watched.

Possible Milan Starting 11 (4-3-3): Maignan; Hernandez; Loftus-Cheek (Pobega), Adli/Krunic, Reijnders; Pulisic, Okafor, Leao; Calabria, Kjaer, and Kalulu (Tomori).
